“Cure, a proposal for healing”

This summer, Roots & Culture hosted our first curatorial residency program, a three month stay for a jury- selected curator. We really lucked out with independent curator, Risa Puleo, who not only brought a thoughtful exhibition to Chicago, but also seemlessly embedded herself in our community, and happened to be quite an epicure. Risa’s show was […]

Piranha Club: E 2 tha Z: Noche de Krampus

Somewhere along the line my typical Grinch-ishness opened up to the idea of the holiday party. I dig how X-mas is celebrated in other cultures, sidestepping the American consumerist frenzy in lieu of feasting with loved ones. So its become an annual tradition, the Piranha Club holiday party. Good timing that the Goat Boy was […]

Piranha Club X Jenny Kendler: Fall Foraged Feast

This may have been the most elaborate Piranha Club yet, I mean we did gather 75% of the ingredients ourselves!

Piranha Club: Advantages in Electronic Cooking

More like Adventures in Electronic Cooking. Personally, I swore off the microwave right after the instant ramen years of early college (1998). I honestly never touched one of the things until Jessica moved in with hers four years ago. It certainly was an indispensable member of our kitchen appliance team in my household growing up, […]

The Piranha Club Presents: Cheese Your Face: 7/4

  Saturday, July 4th. 1-4 PM @ Roots & Culture, 1034 N Milwaukee Ave. Before I developed a taste for Jerry’s endless meandering riffs, Bobby’s good old boy (not always in tune) harmonizing, and Phil’s psych theatrics, I was drawn to the idea of the parking lot. An unregulated open air market, where concert venues […]
